$1083 Black Friday Overclocking DIY Gaming Rig Build

GamersNexus: "In the spirit of spending money—because we needed an excuse to do more of that—we've assembled this "hardcore" DIY gaming PC using only Black Friday deals, which prices it out to a very reasonable $1083." (Black Friday, PC, Tech)

A rather unbalanced build in my opinion. Why a 720 watts PSU for a GPU that requires a quality one of only 450-500 watts at best? I also would've gone for a Sandy Bridge CPU instead of an Ivy Bridge one, since the former is much better suited for OC'ing. Still, for the price it's one heck of a PC. I can't deny that.

I know what you are saying but I'd much rather have a psu that gave a bit of room for upgrading than a psu that just suited the spec.

Should of waited for cyber Monday xD

That's what the combo worked with. The quality is excellent and you won't find a similarly high-quality PSU for less wattage. You also want to run at 60% load on the PSU to allow for maximum efficiency.

windows is not optional if you want to be a pc gamer

Does any serious pc gamer think of Windows as a purchase?

Sorry, but I don't. I've played on computers since the zx81 and I've never paid for an operating system.

If there is one operating system you can comfortably illegally download without any guilt, it is Windows.

That's a classic statement, Beerkeg, for someone who only yesterday called 'thief' on those that download games via torrent...

BAM! you got him!

also I would of went with a SAndy bridge and got more GPU power through higher model or SLI/CFX!

BUT if you plan to stream games or play and record then yeah Ivy Bridge is far and away Better!
